There is nothing wrong with needing a lot of help. We were all there once ourselves. The main problem for me, and I suspect others with your request, is that AIM, ICQ, and other “one to one” type support sessions result, at best, in one person being helped by the investment of my time.
On a forum, the number of people that benefit from the efforts of those who try to provide help and answer questions is much greater, and that allows others to join in the process and help others themselves as they learn.
I do “one to one” help with my clients, but I restrict my “pro bono” help to “one to many” mechanisms in communities that I care about, such as this forum. You won’t “burden the community” as long as you try to “Ask Questions The Smart Way”, and others in the forum can benefit from “lurking” ion the thread in addition to more knowledgable users making their own contribution.
You should also not forget that “google is your friend”, especially if the FAQs and/or wiki seem difficult to grasp; there a lot of simpler beginner tutorials and articles “out there”. Many FAQs, and many wiki articles, by definition provide detailed technical information that can be confusing or presume you have a certain understanding of one concept or another. This is okay, as that is what they are for.
There is a different kind of common “help” docdument generally referred to as a “How To” that may be more usable while you are learning - once you outgrow the “How TO”, you will find FAQs and many wiki articles to be much more useful.
That said, I am ,and I’m sure others here are, willing to help you on the forums when you have a problem.
As for your WordPress “oneclick” situation, there are several things that could acount for you not having yet received the “set-up” email you are expecting:
It has not happened yet - sometimes the “in a few minutes” that the installer mentions is, at best, optimistic. The instller has to create a data base, and sometimes a host, and propagation may be involved - in short, I have had it happen almost instantaneously and I have had had it take hours, depending on circusmstance at DH. Be Patient.
If you already had files in the directory where you told the installer to place the WordPress install, the install will fail - I;ve had “mixed” results with the way that is handled by the various one-click installers, and I know that on occasion, I received no notice of the failure. If you want to see if the files were installed, navigate to that directory via ftp and see if “new stuff” is in there.
You can always try again - the installer “oneclick” panel will let you knwo if it htinks it alredy has installed it.
